Roselle is a species of hibiscus, native to west Africa. It’s leaves, flowers and fruits are used for various purposes. In parts of India, the leaves are used to make pickles and flavor curries. The flower is used in folk medicine as a laxative and diuretic.
For pregnant women, roselle is a good addition to the diet as it is rich in iron and folate. These nutrients are essential for prenatal development.
However, since the fruit is mainly grown and eaten in south-Asian and African countries, it is possible that some women may not adapt to it as well. It is recommended that you consult with your doctor before including roselle in your pregnancy diet.
